emotions
A medal contender in men's skeleton makes a mistake and fights tears on camera, and it's brave. Some US women's hockey players cry after their loss to Canada, and they're mocked. Of course. They're women.
another hockey post
The treatment of women's hockey in the U.S. and Canada should be infuriating to anyone who cares about equality, whether or not you have any interest in seeing a bunch of ladies in pads hit a piece of rubber back and forth.
fake sports girls
"All women may not relate to the Winter Olympics, but one thing is certain: all women can relate to sex," read the PR email that I set on fire with my brain.

There's one thing you might do with your beer that will get you booted from the game. Find out what it is.
cheerleading
'Bringing it on' is associated with a crazy number of injuries -- yet people still insist on treating it more like a dumb hobby than a sport that deserves respect.
athletes
The woman just completed a 110-mile swim at the age of 64. Personally, my biggest accomplishment today was making a sandwich.

I don't know if you guys have ever hung out with a girls' soccer team, but they are often femme as hell.

Unfortunately, according to their owner, that's NEVER going to happen. (The all caps are his.)
tim tebow
Just when we thought all hope was lost for Tim Tebow, he signs with one of the NFL's best teams. Personally, I'm shocked.

volleyball
In my humble opinion, 'deaf volleyball' facilitates true on-court chemistry. Often, hearing people ask me how deaf people communicate on court, and their first impression is that there's a disadvantage to not communicating with verbal cues.

body building
No matter your ethnicity, your natural shade or your body chemistry, all competitors are required to tan their bodies to the same shade of reddish brown.
fandom
No, YOU'RE crying about LGBT acceptance in professional sports!
relationships
Sexual discrimination is rampant in the NFL. And it's time for that to come to an end. NOW.

It's totally OK to stay seated when everyone around you is doing the Wave. Trust me.

Oh. AND THE SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS ARE THE WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS!!!!!!!!!
bikini basketball
Normally I don't get worked up about stuff like this, so why does the Bikini Basketball League feel like such a violation?
